In this stimulating volume, Andrew Brody offers a provocative and original analysis of the current crises which enmesh virtually all countries of the world. He pulls together a number of existing theories and developes a uniquely different approach to the theory of growth and economic cycles. He analyzes the dynamics of economic growth: the period post World War II prosperity has given way to a cycle in which 'growth scissors' threaten the foundations of global economy. All those concerned with economic problems will find this volume disturbing but essential reading.
